Current Initiatives

In concert with TTS and WHO, IXA has the mission to promote ethical and regulatory guidelines for xenotransplantation clinical trials for consideration by national regulatory authorities. IXA has three important goals:

  1. To facilitate implementation of internationally consistent national regulations for the conduct of xenotransplant clinical trials.
  2. To promote conduct of ethical clinical trials that are safe for the participants, minimize health risks for the public at large, and are likely to promote future success.
  3. To educate people around the world about the benefits, risks, and scientific hurdles to achieving the vast therapeutic potential of cross-species transplantation.
